Gameplay

What is TransRoad: USA?

TransRoad: USA is a management simulation game in which you will start out as the owner of a small logistics company. You will have to employ all of your managerial skills to lead your business to success.

What are the initial steps I need to take in the game?

During the first starting of your game in either the story, quest, or sandbox mode, a tutorial will start to show you the first steps. I can't see where the next step of the tutorial is. Red arrows will lead you through the tutorial. Should you be unable to see one, try zooming out with the mouse wheel.

I have a question about the game.

By clicking on the question mark in the upper right corner you can open the e-manual. Here, the game's mechanics are described in detail. Should you still have questions about the game you can visit the STEAM®-Forums under steamcommunity.com/app/494670/discussions/

How do I save my game progress?

You can save your game at any time in the game's menu (upper right hand corner of the screen).

How can I integrate my own music into my game?

You can integrate radio streams from the internet into TransRoad: USA. To do so, add another line in the radio station file. Please make sure that you enter the correct syntax: Name;URL;DataFormat;AudioFormat. Example: my radio;http://myradio.fm;stream;mp3

How do I choose the perfect place for my headquarters?

Generally every city where you place your headquarters will offer contracts for your company. Depending on the trailer type that you chose in the beginning, you should chose the place for your company so that it will have matching clients for this trailer type.

I can't accept contracts in a city, why?

Aside from driving to a city for the first time, you need a certain reputation level to unlock contracts. Try sorting the contract list by "Show contracts: HERE", to find contracts that will raise your reputation level with the city or the client.

How do I create a schedule?

After clicking on a discovered city you will be shown the available contracts. From here you can drag contracts per Drag and Drop down into the schedule bar. Now, click on the check mark to confirm the schedule.

Why can't I start a marketing campaign?

You have to be at least rank 2, and upgrade your headquarters to level 2, to be able to start marketing campaigns. What do the different numbers of axles influence in a truck? Depending on whether a truck has 2, 3 or 4 axles, it will be able to pull different trailers. A 2-axle truck for example can't pull heavy trailers, and a 3-axle truck only with low speed.

I can't drag my rig into my contract - why?

Please ensure that your rig has a trailer that matches the contract type. You can't, for example, drag a rig with a reefer trailer into a contract that requires a dry van trailer.

I can't drag another contract into my schedule - why?

You can only drag contracts of the same type into one schedule. You can't, for example, drag a contract for reefer trailers into a schedule that already has contracts for dry van trailers.

What is a trailer concession?

A trailer concession lets you legally use different types of trailers and lets you accept contracts that involve them. You need for example a new concession to use reefer trailers, and you need to first buy it in the headquarters menu.

What is the difference between a license and a concession?

Your drivers have different licenses that show which trailers they can drive. You can of course assign them to trucks with a trailer that they don't have a license for, but should they get caught you will have to pay a fine! A consession on the other hand shows which trailers your company can use, and which contracts you can accept.
